History and description

The Stadium Gerland was built over most of the 1920s, and opened to the public in May 1926. It was originally designed for multiple sports, but during its first decades few football matches were played at the stadium. It took until 1950 for the stadium to slowly convert into a proper football stadium.

Throughout the 1960s, Lyon experimented with the idea of constructing a new 85,000-seat stadium in order to attract the Olympic Games. However, these plans never materialised.

In 1980, Gerland Stadium set a record attendance when 48,552 spectators attended a match versus local rivals Saint-Etienne.

Two stands—one on each side of the stadium—were built specifically with the Euro 1984 Championships in mind, as Stade Gerland hosted one group match and the semi-final between Spain and Denmark (1-1).

In 1986, the final of the Cup Winners' Cup took place between Dynamo Kiev and Atlético Madrid at Stade Gerland. The game ended in a 3-0 victory for Atlético Madrid.

Lyon was chosen as one of the host cities of the 1998 World Cup, and as a result, two new stands were built at the ends of the stadium that gave it its rectangular shape. The works were completed in 1996.

Stade Gerland hosted five group matches and the quarter-final between Croatia and Germany during the World Cup.

In 2012, Lyon began constructing a new stadium to replace the aging Gerland Stadium, which opened in January 2016. Lyon played their last match at Gerland Stadium on 16 December 2016 when they hosted Tours in the French Cup.

How to get to Stade Gerland

The Stade Gerland stadium is located south of Lyon, about 5 kilometers from Saint-Jean Cathedral and 4 kilometers from Lyon-Perrache railway station. The stadium is easiest reached by metro line B which connects the stadium (stopping at Stade de Gerland) with Lyon's other main railway station, Gare de la Part-Dieu, and meets with line D at Saxe-Gambetta, which in turn connects with the old city centre.

One can take tram 2 to metro stop Jean Macé and catch Metro line B there, or take bus 60 in the direction of Feyzin Les Razes. This bus will drop you off directly at the stadium.

The Stade Gerland is close to two highways and it is easy to access. The best way to approach the stadium is from the ring road south (Périphérique Sur) taking exit 16 Gerland. Follow the boulevard north. The stadium will be on the left side of the road after a curve to the left.

If coming from the A7/A47/Autoroute du Soleil, take exit 1 toward Gerland and cross the bridge (Pont Pasteur). Turn right after the bridge and follow the road until you see the stadium.

Address: 89 Avenue Tony Garnier, 69007 Lyon

Eat, drink, and sleep

The stadium Gerland is located close to the river Rhône and in an area that contains a mix of residential buildings, offices, industry, and other sports facilities. There are a few eating establishments and bars close to the stadium as well as options for drinking in the city center, such as on Rue Marcel Mérieux. However, there is much more variety available in Lyon's city center. The Novotal Lyon Gerland is located about 15 minutes' walk from the stadium, and there are also a few options for rental apartments nearby. On average, these tend to cost a little less than staying at a hotel near the stadium. Click here for all hotels near Stade Gerland.

It is of course perfectly acceptable to stay in Lyon's city centre. If you want to locate your hotel strategically so as to arrive quickly, you may want to look for one close to line B of the metro, for example around Place Guichard. However, connections are easy from other parts of the city centre as well.
